If You Thought Stress Was Making You Sick – You Were Right!

How Stress makes you sick

Leading experts such as Dr Candace Pert, Dr Bruce Lipton, Dr Gabor Maté, Dr Joe Dispenza, Dr Lissa Rankin, Lynne McTaggart and many others around the world now agree how seriously stress and negative emotions impact our bodies.

Hating your job, being in a bad relationship, worrying about money, falling out with family or friends, spreading yourself too thin or giving yourself impossible social or work pressure and deadlines all contribute to your stress levels. While none of this is usually life-threatening, our amygdalas and our bodies don’t know that. They don’t know the difference between perceived or imagined threat and the real thing. So our biology prepares to fight, flee or freeze anyway!

Scientific research is uncovering the biological and chemical path stress takes to manifest as physical illness. Stress knocks our bodies off balance and triggers a cascade of stress hormones which influence your body via the autonomic nervous system. When our bodies are in flight, fight or freeze mode they have less energy available to maintain our immune systems and to heal and repair. It stands to reason then that chronic stress can easily lead to poor health and illness. 

Practices such as Emotional Freedom Technique and meditation help us reach the deeper place within ourselves. The place which lies beyond the stress responses of fight, flight or freeze. The place in which we can re-connect with our true selves and our bodies, soothe our minds and heal our bodies.

If you love EFT tapping you’ll love our What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations. Based on EFT principles What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations (which are great to tap along with) help you release painful, negative emotions and help/ allow your body to heal naturally. These meditations guide you gently through releasing the painful emotional issues generally known to be held in specific parts of the body. Helping you to focus on the area of your body that is crying out for you attention by the very fact that it is manifesting pain. As you lovingly release these emotions, open yourself to a new appreciation for your body and the possibility of a more positive, less painful future you are then led into powerful, positive affirmations for the state of health and wellness you want to create and experience.

The What Your Body Wants to Hear meditation series offers a wide range of meditations to help you release stress and painful emotions held in specific areas of your body.

E.F.T. Tapping For Your Pet – 3 Ways To Tap For Your Pet

E.F.T. Tapping For Your Pet – 3 Ways To Tap For Your Pet

E.F.T. Tapping For your Pet

E.F.T. Tapping When Your Pet is at the Vet

Few things make us feel more helpless than when our pets are ill especially if they have to stay at the vet’s and we can’t see or speak to them.  Even though we know all the medical interventions, as painful as many of them are, could be life saving, it’s horrible to imagine how scared and alone our beloved pet might be feeling. Our imaginations can really run away with us but there is nothing we can do – or is there?

How You Can Help Yourself and Your Pet With Surrogate E.F.T. Tapping

It’s wonderful to see Emotional Freedom Technique becoming more widely known and accepted. It is very quick and easy to learn and amazingly effective even in the hands of complete beginners. Not all teachers know, or will tell you, that E.F.T. can also be done surrogately. You can tap on behalf of someone else even when you are not with them.

As we are using loving intention and energy, time and distance don’t matter. You can tap for your pet no matter where you are!

I won’t speculate on how or why this works, there are many different theories and for the purposes of this article, all I care about is that it helps someone out there.

Firstly Soothe Your Self!

We often project our fears onto others. In such a traumatic situation you have to soothe yourself first. We are no use to anyone else when we are in deep trauma and shock ourselves.  Your pet feels your emotions and energy so by soothing yourself you also help them.

Three Ways to Tap On Behalf of Your Pet

EFT Tapping For Your Pet

Tune in to your pet and tap for whatever you feel or can see is upsetting or traumatising them. The obvious ones are of course, pain, fear, isolation and any painful medical interventions.

1. Tap On Your Own Body As Yourself

Simply tap as you normally would, but rather than state you have the problem, use your pet’s name for your set up statement.  “Even though (pet’s name or my pet) has this problem (state problem) I deeply and completely love and accept (pet’s name).  Do the same with your reminder phrase.

2. Tap On Your Own Body As Your Pet

Similar to the method above but sometimes this helps you  tune into how your pet is feeling more accurately.  Bearing in mind how connected you are it’s not surprising that you often feel exactly what they are feeling.  Set your intention that you are your pet, then tap around as though you are your pet. “Even though I have this problem” etc. Remember to disconnect and come back to yourself when you are done.

3. Using A Proxy Item To Represent Your Pet

This can be a really useful way to help you focus. Any teddy bear, doll or other toy will do. Simply intend the toy to represent your pet and tap around the points as normal.

The Question of Permission

Given that you only have the highest and best intentions for your pet, your heart and intent are pure and loving. In the higher realms we are all connected, we are all love, we are all one. If you feel the need to ask the pet’s higher self or soul for permission do so but I truly don’t think anything done from such love, care and compassion can ever cause harm.

 

 

3 Types of Joint Pain Directly Linked to Your Emotional State

3 Types of Joint Pain Directly Linked to Your Emotional State

Did you know every single thought and feeling you have affects your body in some way? It’s easy to understand that when you remember how you felt when you first fell in love. Your brain was pumping out dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins and you felt amazing! It’s a whole other story when we are stressed, angry, frustrated or sad. Stress hormones put our bodies into fight, flight or freeze which in turn puts a strain on our immune systems.

It’s not so much the events that happen in our lives that affect us, it is our response to those events that can lead to us holding on to negative emotions which in turn affect our bodies.

When we have a healthy, positive outlook and have healed old emotional traumas, we are better able to process and release everyday upsets.  On the other hand, if we have not dealt with old hurts, have negative self-talk on a loop in our minds and refuse to look at our internal issues, our bodies will let us know.

All our life experiences are stored in our subconscious minds and in the cells of our bodies. Unresolved emotional traumas will continue to make themselves known until we acknowledge and heal them.

Aches, pains and ‘accidents’ are your body’s way of letting you know you are carrying unresolved emotional issues. Now is the time to consciously release and heal them and bring inner-peace and comfort back into your life and your body. This can be a great learning experience if you remain present, listen and learn from the messages your body is sending you.

Hip PainWhat Your Body Wants To Hear Heal Hip Pain

Fear of movement can manifest as stiffness or pain in the hips. Fear of moving in to our future or of a change in the direction of our lives. A resistance to change, perhaps regarding work or living situation or a fear of not finding and fulfilling your life’s purpose. Does the ground you are standing on feel shaky and uncertain? Feeling useless or fearing for our survival causes us to hold on tightly to what we have often to the point that we become immobile. Are you carrying too much weight for others, holding it as a mother carries a child on her hip? Learn More About Emotional Connections To Hip Pain & How To Clear Them With Our Free Affirmations

Knee PainWhat your body wants to hear affirmations for knee pain and injury

Pride and inflexibility, stubbornness and ego put a strain on our knees. If our knees give way too quickly, knocking or trembling with fear or an inability to stand up for ourselves, we need to work on our self-esteem and insecurity issues come to believe in ourselves and claim our place in the world.

Ankle PainAffirmations For Ankle Pain

Support is the key here as the ankles reflect the support we depend on not just from others but from our inner support system. This inner system consists of psychological and emotional beliefs that give our lives meaning and purpose. If any of this is taken away, doubted or questioned there is nothing to hold us upright. This can happen when we experience shock or trauma or when we feel rejected, betrayed and unable to stand alone.

E.F.T. Tapping When Your Baby Is In An Incubator

E.F.T. Tapping When Your Baby Is In An Incubator

EFT Tapping When Your Baby is in an Incubator

As a parent there can be few things that make you feel more helpless and useless than when your premature or sick baby is whisked off in an incubator! You have to stand back whilst your baby is put on a ventilator, wired up to noisy monitors,  poked, prodded and subjected to painful and invasive procedures.  Your entire being; your biology, your heart and soul are screaming out to love, nurture and protect this precious little scrap, yet you can do nothing!  As a new mother, every nerve, sinew and hormone is programmed to hold, love and nurture the new arrival,.  You know all the interventions, as painful as many of them are, could be life saving. So you have to stand back, let strangers take over and somehow keep a lid on your viscerally raw emotions and instincts, your baby’s life depends on those strangers and there is absolutely nothing you can do. 

Or is there? 

Back in 1992 when I faced this situation, there was nothing I could do. I didn’t know Emotional Freedom Technique or Reiki. I had no way of soothing myself far less helping my daughter.  A bit later we were allowed to put our hands in the incubator, find a tiny piece of flesh which didn’t have a monitor or cannula  on it and touch her but that didn’t compensate for not being able to pick her up, hold her or feed her. 

Back then, like millions of other parents, I used will-power and determination to get through the long days and nights and continue to function. Many medical staff complimented me on how well I coped. Of course I wasn’t really coping, I was simply repressing painful emotions which is never healthy and brings it’s own problems further down the line!

Emotional Freedom Technique is definitely number one on my list of things I wish I’d known back then!

Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms With E.F.T.

Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms With E.F.T.

using eft for a cold or flu

It’s that time of year again so I thought a short Emotional Freedom Technique session to help you ease cold symptoms might be useful.

The common cold often arises from the simple belief that there is such a thing as a “Cold Season”.  If we buy into this belief it’s pretty certain that we’ll develop a cold!  Feelings of overwhelm, being overworked, carrying too much responsibility, being under too much pressure, feeling scattered and not taking time to listen to your body and slow down also often result in us developing colds.

If you are feeling under the weather check to see if you are feeling any of these emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on.  But you can get started right now by following the suggestions below.

If you are not familiar with E.F.T.  Just follow the tapping points illustrated below.

EFT Tapping PointsStarting at the Side of Hand Point say your set up statement out loud if possible and tap gently on the Side of the Hand with two or three fingers of your other hand.

“Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”.  Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently around ten times saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”.  Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

Return to your Side of Hand Point and say “Even though I have this cold, I know it’s my body’s way of giving me a message, maybe it just wants to me to slow down and take some time out. Or maybe it wants me to look after myself a bit more. Maybe I’ve just been doing to much and need to rest, nurture and love myself more.  I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and I am grateful to my body for giving me this message. Repeat this three times.

Move to the Eyebrow Point and tap gently around ten times saying “My body is giving me this message, I am grateful. I now choose to listen to my body and take good care of myself”.

Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

Back to the Side of Hand Point and say, “Even though I have (state symptom), I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and my body. I am now listening to my body’s messages”. Again, repeat this three times then tap round the points using the reminder phrase, “This symptom (whatever the symptom is, i.e. this blocked nose etc).

You can then do a round for each of your symptoms.
